What is Qigong?

The word Qigong is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced "chee" and is usually translated to mean the life-force or vital energy that flows through all things. The second word, Gong, pronounced gung, means "accomplishment" or "skill that is cultivated through steady practice". Together, Qigong (Chi Kung) means cultivating energy. 

Qigong is an integration of physical postures, breathing techniques, and focused intentions.

Qigong practices can be classified as martial, medical, or spiritual. All styles have three things in common: they all involve a posture, (whether moving or stationary), breathing techniques, and mental focus. The slow gentle movements of Qigong can be easily learned and can be practiced by all age groups. Qigong creates an awareness of and influences dimensions of our being that are not part of traditional exercise programs. When these dimensions are added, the benefits of exercise increase exponentially.


People do Qigong to maintain health, heal their bodies, calm their minds, and reconnect with their spirit.

When these three aspects of our being are integrated, it encourages a positive outlook on life and helps eliminate harmful attitudes and behaviors. It also creates a balanced life style, which brings greater harmony, stability, and enjoyment
